Visiting from a land far, far away, Billy the Bookworm will be making a special appearance at Castle Dene Shopping Centre in celebration of World Book Day.
On Saturday 3rd March, the centre will welcome children and Peterlee locals to hear Billy reading a range of literary favourites every half an hour between 10am–4pm.
From classics such as the Mr Men series, to the works much loved authors including David Walliams, Dr Seuss and Beatrix Potter, Billy the Bookworm will bring a day of fun and inspiration to Castle Dene Shopping Centre and children in the local community.
Not only will little ones be able to hear their favourite stories, they will also have the chance to win an array of prizes by coming to the centre dressed as their favourite book character.
The following weekend on Saturday 10th March, local mums will be in for a treat when the centre will be celebrating Mother’s Day with free nail treatments between 11am-2pm and more. There will also be a massage chair for tired mums to try out and put their feet up on the day.
